Is This Arsenal’s Year?

Alexis Sanchez just scored a panenka in the 98th minute to secure three points for #Arsenal and move into second place — after Arsenal gave up a foolish penalty just a few minutes earlier in stoppage time. 

Chelsea have a five point lead with a game in hand. 

But still. 
But still:
Could this be our year? 

UPDATE: Naturally, Chelsea won and the gap is back to eight points. As you were.

  1. Much as I wish it could be so, I don’t think so. I just don’t have confidence in this team — or, more to the point, Arsene Wenger. I’d be happy if he proves me wrong but I don’t think Arsenal will win another premier league title with him at the helm. But I guess you feel differently?!

    1. I feel you, YTSL. Totally understandable. After all, we’ve certainly been here before. Probably just wishful thinking on my part. But still, you gotta believe! 🙂
